Butter Sponge Cake

This recipe is from a yellowed copy from an old newspaper clipping.  My Mom & I love this in place of shortcake.  I don't know why "butter" is in the title because there's only 1 tablespoon in the cake!  Please try this quick, easy & delicious cake (and much tastier & more moist than shortcake!!!).  I hope you like it.

2 eggs
1/4 t. salt
1 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 cup milk, boiling
1 T. butter
1 cup sifted flour
1 t. baking powder

Beat eggs until very light.  Then beat in very well the salt, sugar & vanilla.  Beat in milk which is boiling hot & which has been heated with the butter. 

Sift flout & baking powder & beat into the the egg mixture.  Por very quickly into a greased & floured 8" or 9" square pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

For yummy strawberry shortcake, cut & split slices of cake & serve with sweetened strawberries & whipped cream on top!
